God Will Finish What He Has Started In You.

Pastor Glenn Newton 1-17-01

Text : Philippians 1:3-6

How many of you here this morning have a unfinished project waiting for you at home?

Go ahead, raise your hand, Something you have been working on, trying to get finished,

maybe for along time, but for whatever reason, you haven’t quite completed it? How

many? Somebody share with us, what is your project that your needing to finish? It’s

confession time.

I would say almost all of us have some kind of project, some kind of goal, that we are

working on, or at least from time to time we have one. It’s a human nature kind of thing.

Whether it’s working in your yard, planting flowers or tree’s, or maybe fixing up your old

barn, or maybe it’s redesinging your house, or it could be reading a book, doing a puzzle,

whatever. We all have some kind of projects that we undertake.

Now my next question will probably divide us up evenly, and it can be the source of

conflict in some cases, but let me ask it anyway.

How many of you will only do one project at a time, and you will not even think

about starting another one until the first one is finished? If this describes you, I would

guess that unfinished projects kind of bother you until there done, right?

Then there’s the other side, how many of you can have two or three projects kind

of lying around, all of them about half-way done, and your attitude is kind of like, I’ll get

to them when I get a chance?

Now if you put these two different types of people working on the same project, can you

understand the why’s there’s conflict? But you can also understand why they compliment

each other and make for a good blend, if done properly.

This morning My Real topic isn’t conflicting personalities, but instead I want to

Remind You, THAT GOD IS GOING TO FINISH WHAT HE HAS STARTED, IN

YOU. And This Truth also applies to the New Hope Church, God isn’t done with us, In

Fact I get the Feeling He’s just getting started.

For the next couple weeks, I want to try and show you, convince you through

God’s Word, and Encourage You to See Yourself Through God’s Eyes, To See How

Much God Values You.

If your down on yourself, these next few weeks, I hope that You will Find God’s

Truth and New Light about You. You see, I’m convinced that when we will take to heart,

when we will really listen to What God says about us in His Word, we will be

overwhelmed by His Love, and We Will Begin to see ourselves in His Light and we will

then be hard pressed to be “down” on ourselves anymore.

This morning I want to share 3 Things to Remember as We Talk about How God

Will Finish What He has started in my life.

First, Remember God’s Great Love for you, and How He rejoices over you even now,

right now.

Turn in your Bibles with me to Luke 15:8-9 - Jesus is telling a Parable, a story that

describes the Father’s Love for you. Don’t let it get by you this morning, take it in, think

about what it means in your life today.

“Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a

lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she

Talk about it...

As I prepare to move to a new appointment this sermon will help me make the point that God will complete the work He has started. It does not depend on the pastor!
